AJ Otto  <--- you are here


Today I am using Spellbinders™ LF-126 Grand Squares die template to create a gift box.  I cut out and embossed five of the smallest of the Grand Squares die templates and adhered them into a gift box shape. 

This set comes with a total of 7 (SEVEN!) dies that you can cut, emboss, and stencil with making them about $7 each.  And for the GRAND size they are-you can create mini books, layouts, altered items, etc; making these dies a GRAND value with all they have to offer! 

Here are the sizes, from smallest to largest:
1: 4";  2: 4½";  3: 5";  4: 5½";  5: 6";  6: 6½"; 7: 7"



 I used Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather paper, and Gina K Designs stamps in today's project.  Inside the box is a bag of yummy mint chocolate covered cookies tied off with some tinsel and flower pieces.  I added a bit of May Arts ribbon, and a small mitten die cut from the same patterned paper as the front label.


 Here's a close up of the front side.  I cut a frame out of the main panel using the S4-126 Classic Squares LG.  I stamped the sentiment onto a S4-112 Classic Ovals SM, and then popped it onto a S4-233 Labels Nine, finishing it off with the same small mitten from the S4-285 Nested Mittens set.
  

Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin’ Prize Package   One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today.  Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win.  Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes.

Thank you!
